The first feature film by the director of "Battleship Potemkin", Sergei Eisenstein's "Strike" is a visual tour-de-force that employs dynamic editing and experimental camerawork to dramatize the saga of a bitterly-fought factory strike in 1903. Often compared to "Citizen Kane" in terms of audacious directorial debuts, "Strike" embodies the revolutionary spirit of the Soviet people of the 1920s, cresting the waves of artistic and political idealism. This edition of "Strike" was mastered in HD from a 35mm film element restored by the Cinematheque de Toulouse, with a newly-recorded score by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, adapted largely from the works of traditional Russian composer.

"Glumov's Diary" - (1923, 4 min.) For years considered lost, Eisentein's first film is a playful experiment short made for his stage production of Alexander Ostrovsky's "Enough Stupidity in Every Wise Man"; "Eisenstein and the Revolutionary Spirit" (2008, 37 Min.) - Film historian Natacha Laurent places Eisenstein's work in the context of the Communist Revolution and contemporary Soviet filmmaking.
